Winning point-to-pointer OLD KILCASH would probably have lost his maiden tag over hurdles but for falling at the last at Ballinrobe in August. He didn't appear happy on the softer ground at Listowel last time and should be up to this. Our Maimie has run well enough this summer to be considered and this looks her optimum trip while Father Jack is generally thereabouts without quite finding a finishing burst. All Fired Up had run a reasonable race over the track and trip last month before being brought down at Tramore, though he was struggling at the time.
